Welcome to the Childhelp Blog

On behalf of Childhelp, one of the leading non-profits dedicated to the prevention and treatment of child abuse, I am excited to be launching the brand new Childhelp blog.

The main purpose of this blog is to provide an information sharing destination, where you can find news stories on child abuse and neglect, see where Childhelp is mentioned in the media, upcoming Childhelp events and also opportunities where Childhelp needs your support.

2009 promises to be an especially eventful year for Childhelp, as it marks Childhelp's 50th anniversary.  Founded in 1959 by Sara O'Meara and Yvonne Fedderson, Childhelp has grown over the years to include Childhelp Logoadvocacy centers and residential treatment centers in multiple states, abuse prevention and awareness programs taught in schools in multiple countries, the Childhelp National Child Abuse Hotline which receives nearly 200,000 calls a year and much more.

Throughout the year, Childhelp will be holding a number of events to use the 50th anniversary to raise awareness of child abuse...keep checking this blog for more news and announcements.

Welcome again to the Childhelp blog, we hope you find the information here useful and that you share it with others.  If you have suggestions, comments or information you would like to share with us, you can email it to me at dhofrichter@childhelp.org
